Thank you.

I hadn't seen this message in memorable recent history - but only this morning 
after tidying up my ports and other services so I assumed it was associated 
with some service I shut down.

In any case, all I got was the first message, no follow-up.  Just in case I 
shut down and restarted tor and haven't seen it again.  Very sporadic for me 
at this point and possibly a one-off event.
